The last few days have been mostly routine. Yesterday I shopped four gas stations and did a theater check. The check involved visiting three screens of my choosing and recording the ads that played before the trailers (in a show called First Look). I also had to take photos of some posters and popcorn bags. On Saturday I shopped four gas stations, did a 5 store special credit card assignment and took photos of a parking lot that is going to be paved. I did go to a concert Saturday night; my first in years. We went to see Daughtry. It was decent.
Today is yet another day of shops, but I don't have a ton to do. I have 5 gas station audits and a fast food restaurant for lunch. All I have lined up tomorrow is a fast food lunch, and the rest of the week is similarly bleak. For some reason I'm not finding as many attractive shopping opportunities as I did in the past. Many of the jobs I used to do are now offered with a much lower fee, one that I'm unwilling to accept.
I'll save my soap box on how mystery shopping is becoming commoditized for another day.
Outside of shopping, I found out I'm going to have to replace the air conditioner at the rental property. That's a $4,000 expense I wasn't planning. Big ouch. I'll also be looking at planning my July trip to Florida.
